Nuggets Haven't Won in San Antonio Since 2012

Jamal Murray (27) of the Denver Nuggets drives on Quincy Pondexter (3) of the San Antonio Spurs during the fourth quarter of the Nuggets' 114-105 win on Tuesday, April 16, 2019.

Derrick White has made quite a name for himself in the 2019 NBA playoffs, as the point guard scored a career-best 36 points in Game 3 of the Spurs’ 118-108 home victory over the Denver Nuggets. White and the Spurs, who hold a 2-1 series lead, opened as 3.5-point home favorites with a total of 208 for Game 4.

Nuggets vs Spurs Game Center

Standout Stats

  • White outplayed Nuggets point guard Jamal Murray, as he made 15-of-21 field-goal attempts to raise his series average to 23 points per game.
  • Second-seeded Denver has now dropped 14 straight games in San Antonio - an extremely concerning trend for Nuggets bettors. San Antonio is 22-7 all-time in the postseason against the Nuggets, including 13-3 in Texas.
  • Nuggets all-star Nikola Jokic had 22 points in Game 3 and is averaging 17.7 points, 11.7 rebounds and 9.7 assists in the series.
  • Denver could use some better production from Will Barton, however. Barton is averaging just 3.5 points on 3-of-16 shooting over the previous two games, which means backup guard Malik Beasley could be in line for some increased playing time after going 5-of-6 from 3-point range in Game 3 while contributing 20 points and nine boards.
  • The Nuggets haven’t won a game in San Antonio since March 4, 2012.

My best bet for Nuggets-Spurs

Spurs -3.5

It’s hard to go against San Antonio’s success over Denver at home, and I’m not about to buck that trend right now. The Spurs have looked like the much better team over the past few games and I expect them to continue Denver’s immense issues in the Lone Star State tonight.
